MS. Largarde also commended Purim African Youth Development Platform, PAYD , for their initiative and asked that more girls be enrolled and given the opportunity to benefit from the NGO’s integrated programmes.
Executive Director of PAYD, Mrs.Aku Xornam Kevi thanked the IMF Boss, UNFPA, National Youth Authority and others who have been supportive over the years.
She said the donation will significantly impact its integrated programmes, thereby transforming the lives of the head potters under the initiative.
Also an Economist with the University of Ghana Business School, Dr. Lord Mensah says as Ghana exits the IMF programme, it will be prudent that government sticks to most of the conditions given it during the period to ensure fiscal discipline.

He called for strict adherence to these conditions to avoid expenditure overrun.
